Schoolboys handed over their precious pocket money for doughnuts at an annual coffee morning to raise money for a cancer charity.

University College School (UCS) in Frognal, Hampstead, served up hot drinks and delicious cakes for pupils, teachers and parents on Tuesday. The event, organised by the Senior School Parents’ Guild, was one of thousands taking place across the country to raise funds and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of its world’s biggest coffee morning campaign.

The Guild has raised about £1,500 for the charity so far, with more to come from another coffee morning at the junior branch later this week.

Parents’ Guild Tania Levenfiche said: “It was very successful and it was a lovely social event because the mums had a chance to have a chat.”
